AUDs have been rendered rather useless

If you are still having problems accessing the streams, please post about it. I gather last night's site glitch was temporary.

You miss his point. Streaming auds are rather useless unless you have a high speed internet connection everywhere you go. Streaming oggs are doubly useless because they're lossy, you're locked into using one format or have to suffer two lossy encoding cycles.

MOST IMPORTANTLY: If these lossy auds get converted to CD and then ripped, the trading pool is contaminated FOREVER. This makes lossy encodes worse than useless.

This is why you need to make the discussion public. You obviously don't understand what's important to the people who use the archive. We'd be screaming just as loud if the GD said "No lossless" instead of "No SBDs", probably louder.

The real test is if SBD's will be banned from trade on etree and gdlive, and tmnsp ect. this is one site, so i'm just waiting to see what GDP's policy is about trading boards on all the sites....

lets be patient before we fly off the handle. i'm just as upset as everyone else, but all we have to do is learn how to torrent, and everyone will be able to get 2-3 shows/day or so, just not ones of their own choosing...

that's not hard fellas....here are some sites that offer free boards.
